into southwestern washington state, as well. we are going to see more rain today, but a stronger storm is going to move in for sunday. that one also has the potential to produce another several inches of rain. we've seen wind gusts so far up to around 60 to almost 90 miles per hour. so these are intense storms that are just hitting the west coast from seattle through portland, all the way down into sacramento, california. even stretching as far south as san francisco. we do have a lot of rain out there that way. we are looking for another 3 to 5, even isolated 6, 7, inch reports on top of what has already fallen. this is mostly a rain event, as well. although we are picking up some mountain snow, it's more or less the rain that has been the biggest issue, along with those gusty winds. elsewhere we aren't really looking at a whole lot going on across the eastern half of the country. few light snow showers possible across new england later on tonight. just making the roads a little slippery. not a whole lot of accumulation. we are also in addition to all that's going on going to see record-breaki
. >> he sounds like the conservative columnist in "the washington post." sounds like tom cole, oh, oklahoma republican and a conservative. this is the best of bad options. do this and live to fight another day on everything else. where are you on this issue? >> well, and where i am is i'm pleased that conservativeses and other republicans are putting ideas on the table. there is an unwillingness to address the spending side of the equation and, chuck, if we don't deal with the spending components and do that first, we're not going to be able to tax our way out of the situation. if you look at the problem and at extending those middle class tax rates and elevating on the top 2%, you generate enough revenue to cover eight days of running the federal government. so i think what we need to do 0 is keep the american people engaged. keep them focused on the issue and look at the spending, look at the reforms. >> i understand, but is it worth going over this fiscal cliff to do that or at this point let's just pure politics here, take away the president's best leverage. >> well, there aga

of spending cuts. julian talks about there's $1.6 trillion. only in washington, d.c. can you say we're winding down the war but we're going to count that as savings. baseline spending doesn't make any sense. the president of the united states -- >> if we -- >> julian, hang on one second. the president of the united states should call the congressional leadership up to camp david, go up there and they should get in a room and they should sit there until they hammer out a deal. >> i agree with that. >> julian, go ahead. >> there are three big points the viewers need to understand and they need to take note that ron did not respond to. first, on the economists. the economists are almost entirely in obama's camp in this question. cbo did a study and republicans didn't like that study so they asked crs to do a study. they found no impact. economists are with obama on this issue. obama campaigned on tax fairness, won on tax fairness. the public is with him. the third point ron didn't respond to, it is a matter of fact republicans have paraded for the last -- since anybody can remember as the party t
bankruptcy. jenna: james is live in washington with more. reporter: yes, what is clear is increasingly, the two sides -- the obama, white house, senate democrats on one side, senate republicans on the other, there is a ticking clock involved here. they should be hitting their stride right about now. timothy geithner is trying to avoid plunging of the fiscal cliff. he has made clear that the obama administration is saying that the first order of business has to be to extend tax breaks for middle-class families and raise tax rates for the top 2% of income earners. talks over how to rein in entitlement spending should be held sometime next year. >> the president is asking for $1.6 trillion of new revenue over 10 years. twice as much as he has been asking for the public. his stimulus spending exceeded the amount of new cuts that he was willing to consider. it was not a serious offer. reporter: enter a new player in the talks, stephanie cutter. you remember her? she was the deputy campaign manager for the obama-biden ticket suggested that mitt romney might have committed a felony on his tax
